Mark Butkus reviewed on on July 13, 2011

A blend of short fiction and shorter poetry set in the seamy underbelly of a time and place near you. The Noir Issue evokes Chandler, Hammett, their private dicks and girls gone wrong.

Hell, even Keroauc's Dean Moriarty makes an appearance as two characters - Dean and Moriarty - who are looking to hit the road in Matthew C. Funk's From Death Trip to Road Trip.

These five minute reads are perfect reading while waiting for the next train. The Noir Issue bring together the talents of 27 rising nouveau crime authors and visual artists in 25 chapters of graphic squalor and ambivalence.

Who's been wronged? Who's gone missing? And who's just seen too many dead bodies? It won't take you long to get to the answers in these lyrical crime scene photos - the stories end while you are still blinded by the flash bulb.
